Attestation of international travel obligatory to travel to France

As part of the implementation of Prime Minister’s Instruction No. 6149/SG of 18 March 2020 on decisions taken to combat the spread of Covid-19 with regard to border control, the Ministry of the Interior has drawn up model certificates for derogatory international travel to metropolitan France or the overseas collectivities.

This certificate will be required for entry into or transit through French territory as of Monday 6 April at 6 p.m. (Paris time).
Accompanied by supporting documents demonstrating the status invoked, it will have to be presented to the transport companies, before the use of the ticket, by passengers wishing to travel to French territory. It will also be presented to the authorities in charge of border controls for all types of borders:

  • at France’s external borders (air, sea and land links, including rail links);
  • at France’s internal borders.

Persons travelling to the French overseas collectivities are also informed that they will be subject to a health check on arrival in the collectivity, which may result in the adoption of an order for quarantine in a dedicated facility or at home.

You will find the different models of certificates below.
